Release & Restore

Release & Restore

By Shari Belmarez

Trauma, exercise, inflammation, sitting, and poor posture, or should I just say life in general, can put pressure on nerves and muscles, causing chronic pain, decreased joint range of motion, and decreased circulation. Pain prevents you from performing your best, and affects your ability to perform daily tasks.

Mobility is the key to increasing physical strength and performance.

Self-myofascial release is a technique that helps heal and repair your soft-tissue (fascia) throughout your body. In as little as 10 minutes a day, you will begin to feel better and perform better.

This course will teach you various techniques that can be practiced anytime and anywhere while helping to enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities.

This course is eligible for 20 CEUs with Yoga Alliance.
